The Barrel Song

Type: Songs & Stories


“Roll – roll – roll – roll,
roll-roll-rolling down the hole!
Heave ho! Splash plump!
Down they go, down they bump!
So they sang as first one barrel and then another rumbled to the dark opening and was pushed over into the cold water some feet below.”

Barrels out of Bond, pg. 194, The Hobbit
